A question of where you find comfort

It’s been an interesting last seven days. I’ve had four significant conversations in that time, and when I sat down with the intention of finishing a post about Expectations, I felt a strong urge to write about a seemingly bizarre incident I learned a lot from. That incident had come up in several of the recent conversations.

I might still finish the one on Expectations, but will share this first.

So here it is: https://stmatfirstcrcedmonton.wordpress.com/articles-stories-further-explanations/i-cant-even-die-in-my-own-church/

Am I really a “Done”?

In my personal musings I suddenly realized that there was a strong possibility that if I did not do contractual pastoral work in congregations, I’d possibly become a “Done” – someone who still has most of his Christian faith intact, but rejects the institutional organized church as the best place in which to live it out. This recognition shocked me a bit, and I suddenly felt like a kind of hypocrite, challenging myself with the question: “if you don’t believe in the organized church, is it authentic to work within it still?” I have not answered that yet, but by not resigning I guess in some way I have. This post is a beginning to trying to sort out my struggle.
